Developmental Biology Course Includes

Course Overview:

Developmental biology is the study of how organisms develop from a single cell to a complex multicellular organism. This course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the basic concepts and principles of developmental biology. The course will cover topics such as potency, commitment, specification, induction, competence, determination, differentiation, morphogenetic gradients, cell fate, cell lineages, stem cells, genomic equivalence, cytoplasmic determinants, imprinting, mutants, and transgenics in analysis of development. Additionally, the course will cover gametogenesis, fertilization, and early development, morphogenesis and organogenesis in animals and plants, and programmed cell death, aging, and senescence.

Course Duration: 10 weeks

Course Content:

Week 1-2

What my students have to say….

I am so glad that I joined this course. It has helped me a lot to understand the concepts of development biology. Before I used to skip questions from Dev bio but after this course, I always look forward to them. All the lectures are well planned and well executed. The recordings and pdfs are provided that makes the revision comfortable. The lectures are interactive and mostly end with solving PYQs.

Pooja ma'am is an amazing teacher. She creates a positive environment for learning and make sure that no student is left out. 

Overall, it was a great experience. 10/10 I will definitely come back for more courses.

I learned about Ace Pathshala from one of my college professors while pursuing myB.Sc. honours in Zoology. In the short amount of time I have, my goal is to crack the CUETPG exam. Pooja mam is an excellent teacher who provides the finest possible guidance.She is friendly and makes biology seem simple to me. Classes and notes have beendelivered on schedule. She offers hassle-free classes with the best and most thoroughsubject material. She is a plethora of information. I can rely on her completely to crack this competitive exam.

Dr. Pooja (naam hi kafi hai) :)

You are a teacher who comes to the level of the students to teach, so that we can have a better understanding of concepts. I often remember you by the simple words you said to us "beta clear your basic concepts first, ask questions whatever & wherever you want to, I am always here ".

Whatever you start teaching you always start everything with the very basis of that topic to make students learning roots strong enough to grasp the technicalities of the subject matter. You always guide us how to study for a particular exam and what to focus on.

There are very few people in life that not just teach you by heart but also shows you how to Live fully & enjoy every moment of studying & knowing different & new things just by the way they live & portrait the image of being an ideal professor, no doubt you are one of those professors in my entire education.

Indeed, a Great Teacher and kind Mentor you are. Thank you so much for being the best ;) always. God bless you with all the happiness & success in your life.
